As a result of recent advances in life science and technology, various therapeutic drugs have been developed and active research in the fields of medicine for the development of novel drugs are under progress. Among these researches, the Drug Delivery System (DDS) is an advanced technology that effectively delivers therapeutic drugs to desired targets and thereby reduces adverse effects and increases efficacy. The application of this technology in the industry is technology-intensive and high value-added and therefore suitable for Korea's condition which is poor of material resources while abundant of human resources. Therefore there are many efforts in developing DDS as a major fundamental industry in Korea. Therefore this technology has emerged as a new technology that has a substantial impact in the development and growth of biotechnology related industries in Korea. In this review, we introduce the basic concepts and principles of DDS, so that pediatric endocrinologists may obtain a more comprehensive understanding and may benefit in treating patients with this advanced technology.
